Huge Win for Silly Fun!

What I Loved: This book cracked me up from the moment I saw it. I had so much fun putting the book up to my face to pretend to be a barnyard animal. My Middle-Grade kids acted a bit like I had lost my mind but my Pre-K students will...

a little sin with your enemies-to-lovers trope.

What I Liked: This second installment of the Kingdom of the Wicked Trilogy was intense and sinfully delightful. The story begins right after Emilia sold her soul and agrees to go with Prince Wrath to Hell to be the devil’s bride. At every turn, Prince Wrath protects her and guides...

Book 4, Chapter keep it going!

What I Liked: Brandon Sanderson’s ability to integrate the silly into a story enhances this series and makes it all the more appealing for Middle-Grade readers each time. My family enjoyed the chapter names this go around. It went from chapter 2 to chapter 6 with a...

Spoiler Alert

What I Liked: Ben Oliver delivers a super intense third and final look into the future with this dystopian thriller in the last book, THE ARC. There is a bookish meme about how you would love to live in a book. Well, this is not the book the meme was...

Suspenseful conclusion

What I Liked: This second part of the duology was so suspenseful! This is one that will captivate you and keep you turning pages until you know if everyone will survive the end of the curse. With alliances and reasons changing, it is hard to predict which side the characters...

You can't outrun your destiny but you may be able to fight it

What Worked: This book had Hunger Games vibes while creating a new world. This was a unique take on the ‘chosen one’ theme. Monroe Benson was born goddess-touched, marking her as one of ten girls that will compete to the death for the hand of Prince Cohen when he is...

Cheers to feelings about the topic of fish sticks and remembering to be smart!

What I Liked: I enjoy the ongoing commentary at the beginning of the last two books speaking out on the kind of people that would start a series in the middle and for those that read the last page at the beginning. It has been funny to see the fake...

Love this Topsy Turvy Action and Adventure Series

What I Liked: There are two different components to the Alcatraz Vs. The Evil Librarian series that make the book so delightful: first is the adventure story taking place and second is the commentary that Brandon Sanderson gives from a writer’s perspective in the guise of the narrator, Alcatraz. ...

Who Needs Sleep? A MUST Read Story!

What I Liked: This is my first time reading anything by Robin Roe and wow is she very talented with the phycological drama. First off, plan a chunk of time and start early on this book. Don’t be like me, who started this 502-page book early evening and then finished...

Audiobook or Print, the book is Amazing!

What I Liked: Rosaria Munda delivers an intensely engaging third and final book to the Fireborne trilogy. This world is so richly detailed and the characters well developed that it is hard not to be sucked into this fantasy world and worry about these characters’ plight as you would dear...

Time to save the day again!

What I Loved: This book is such a great book for Middle-Grade readers. Once again, we are loosely in Medieval times this time with more fantastical events and even less historical accuracy. Not that this is a problem. This book has so many subtle jokes that an older child will...
